I know I don't religiously post about Arrow but some of the news and bits for the upcoming second season has been rather exciting, so here's an update.
First of all, here's a rather fetching poster for the second season of the show. Pictured are Katie Cassidy (Laurel), Manu Bennett (Slade), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity), Stephen Amell (Oliver), David Ramsay (Diggle), Willa Holland (Thea) and Colton Haynes (Roy) and from the trailers, it certainly seems that Oliver is moving up the ladder from vigilante to hero while a slew of familiar characters will also be cropping up in the new season.
The main one being The Flash, who we now know will be played by Grant Gustin. The actor, best known for his role as bitchy Sebastian from Glee has bagged the coveted role of Barry Allen and will be appearing in three episodes of Arrow's second season with the potential of getting his own series as well as his third appearance will serve as a backdoor pilot for a potential show. Other familiar characters will include Cynthia Addai-Robinson as Amanda Waller, Navid Negahban as Al-Owal, Bex Tayler-Klaus as Sin, Teryl Rothery as Jean Loring, Dylan Bruce as Adam Donner and Caity Lotz as the Black Canary. Overall, looks like an exciting second season, doesn't it?
